Stockholm Folk Register Cards (1926-1939)

Folkregister

If you are researching in Stockholm city during the period of 1926-1939, you will find the Stockholm Folk Register Cards helpful. You will find one set of cards for the recorded deaths in Stockholm and another set of cards showing movement (utflyttade). These records are found in the archive, “Överståthållarämbetet, Skatteverket, Mantalsavdelningen, Folkregisterkort (ÖÄ)”

You can search for the records in ArkivDigital by doing the following:

  • Go to ArkivDigital Online.
  • Open search window.
  • Click on advanced search.
  • Select Stockholms stad.
  • Select Överståthållarämbetet, Skatteverket, Mantalsavdelningen, Folkregisterkort (ÖÄ).
  • Or you can enter “folkregister” in the search box and search.

These cards are organized alphabetically for the entire city of Stockholm. You do not need to know the parish where the person lived. However, the sorting is by phonetic spelling. For example both Carlsson’s and Karlsson’s are included in the K’s.

The death cards can be used as a type of person register for the death books. On the front side, you will find the deceased person’s death date, birth date and birth place. On the back side of the card you will find the address where the person lived at the time of his death.

The cards showing the movement of persons are also interesting. The example images below show both sides of the card. The front side of the card shows the head of the household, his wife and child with their birth dates and birth parish. The back side of the card shows the date they moved and the parish where they moved to along with the address.

New Records in ArkivDigital

During October, many new records have been added to ArkivDigital’s online library. We have added not only Swedish records but records from Kansas in the United States and Åland, Finland.

We mentioned previously about our photographing activities in Kansas in the blog, Swedish American Church Books from Kansas, USA. Only a small portion of the Kansas Swedish American church books are online today. Much more will be added in the near future.

Earlier, we have photographed many documents from Åland in Finland. However, we did not photograph the seamen house records.  Currently, we are photographing and publishing records from Mariehamn’s seamen house and Vårdö’s seamen house. New material is being added regularly. Read about our Åland records here.

As for the Swedish records, our focus has been on the estate inventories. A few weeks ago we published a blog giving a status on the availability of estate inventories in ArkivDigital. Click here to read the blog. Since then, we now have completed adding all the estate inventories for Göteborgs och Bohus, Norrbotten and Västernorrland counties up to and including 1930 and for Stockholm city up to and including 1921.

Military records that have recently been added include more documents from the so-called C-byrån, which covered military intelligence outside of Sweden during the Second World War along with more military pension documents. More information about the pension documents will be published in a future blog.

Our online library has now nearly 54 million images which equates to more than 100 million pages for your Swedish family and historical research. Many new records were added to ArkivDigital during the last month. Below is a summary of the highlights.

Estate Inventories
We continue to focus on photographing the estate inventories (bouppteckningar) for the period from 1901 to 1940. Below is a summary of the new additions.

All estate inventories from 1901 to 1940 for Blekinge and Halland counties are now available. Photographing is in progress for Malmöhus and Kristianstad counties for the years 1931 to 1940. The estate inventories for Stockholm county (except for Stockholm city) are now available up to 1930. Only a few volumes for the period 1931 to 1940 remain to be photographed. We will begin to photograph the estate inventories for the period from 1901 to 1940 for Stockholm city.

Concerning estate inventories, we want to mention some words about Borås city court and magistrate where the records are not preserved at the regional archive but instead at the city archive in Borås. We have been busy in Borås this past winter and early spring photographing and as a result the estate inventories for Borås are now available up to 1960.

Population/tax registers and real estate books
Other materials added during the last month were the district archives (häradsskrivarnas) population/tax registers (mantalslängder) from earliest times up to 1820 for Östergotland county along with real estate books (fastighetsböcker) for Malmö city. The real estate books, which began to be introduced in 1875, can include notes well into the 1900’s and are found in the archive “Inskrivningsdomarna I Malmö”. To search for this archive, click on advanced options in the search window and select archive type: court registrar.

Air Crashes (Flyghaverier)  and Defense Readiness (Beredskapsverket)
“Flygstaben: Centralexpeditionen”, a series about air crashes for the period 1934-1949, has been photographed during the last month and much of the material is now available in ArkivDigital.  The remaining volumes will soon be added to the online archive.  You can find the archive, “Flygstaben: Centralexpeditionen” in the military archives.

The Swedish military defense readiness agency’s official military work, “Beredskapsverket” is a comprehensive series describing the military defense readiness program for the years 1937-1945.  ArkivDigital has photographed about 19,000 images from this series and more will be added. You can find these documents in the “Beredskapsverket Avdelning 1” volume in the military archives.

Estate Inventories (Bouppteckningar) Status Update

ArkivDigital_logo_rgb (1)

We have mentioned in previous blogs that we are currently photographing the estate inventories (bouppteckningar) for all of Sweden for the period 1901-1940. For two counties, Gotland and Jämtland, the photographing is complete for these years and the records are available in ArkivDigital’s online archive. For the other counties, photographing is in progress and proceeding at full speed.

We have chosen to photograph the estate inventories at the respective provincial archives in groups of 10-year sequences. This means that we first photograph the period 1901-1910, then the period 1911-1920 and continue in this manner. Below is the current status of the photographing for each county.

Photographing is in progress for the time period 1901-1910 for the following counties: Jönköping, Kalmar, Kopparberg, Kronoberg, Södermanland, Uppsala, Värmland Västmanland, Örebro and Östergötland.

Concerning the southern part of Sweden, the estate inventories for Blekinge and Halland counties are available online up to 1920.  Malmöhus and Kristianstad county estate inventories are complete for the period 1901-1910 and the majority of the estate inventories for the period 1911-1920 are also available online.

For Göteborg och Bohus, Skaraborg and Älvsborg counties, the majority of the estate inventories for the period 1901-1910 along with half of the estate inventories for 1911-1920 are available online. For these counties, we were not able to photograph these estate inventories in exact chronological order.  At the moment there are some gaps but these will be corrected later.

Regarding Gävleborg, Västernorrland, Västerbotten and Norrbotten counties, the photographing for the period 1901-1910 is complete and the material is available online. However, there are a few individual volumes missing that we have not been able to access.  We are in the process of adding volumes for the period 1911-1920.

The estate inventories for Stockholm county for the period 1901-1910 are complete and volumes are being added for the period 1911-1920. We have decided not to begin photographing the estate inventories for Stockholm city until we finish photographing the estate inventories for Stockholm county up to 1940. Once these volumes are complete and available online, we will begin photographing the Stockholm city estate inventories.

The photographing of estate inventories will continue at a brisk pace during 2015 and newly photographed volumes will be added continually.
